The ADVA has Veterans Service Offices in 60 of Alabama’s 67 counties. These offices provide Veterans with free services, including counseling, hands-on assistance in submitting applications for VA compensation & pension claims, and assisting with all other state and federal veterans benefits and services. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, ADVA has opened 10 new Veterans Service Offices in the last year.  Based in large part to the services provided by these offices, Alabama Veterans and their dependents received more than $4 billion in federal VA benefits in 2020.
